11:04pm
released from the hospital by sunday. another incident surrounding the amgen tour california race caused a big stir today, a bomb scare. police temporarily shut down an area of downtown livermore after a suspicious cardboard box was found in the area near the 2100 block of second street. the area was evacuated and the bomb squad was called in, but a local vendor claimed it was his box filled with postcards. tonight one man in custody in antioch after police say he's linked to the shooting of a 22-year-old victim. the body was found friday in the apartment complex of the 3400 block of hudson court. it was a vigilant resident that alerted police to a suspicious man in the neighborhood. the identity of the suspect and victim have not been released yet. we had a pretty nice day, lot of sunshine, clear skies over san francisco, no fog out there, at least not now. there is some at the coast that will spread into the bay. notice the camera shaking
11:05pm
around. that's the sea breeze that's been pouring into the bay this evening and cooling temperatures. we're in the upper 50s and low 60s. most places, san francisco now 59 degrees, brentwood inland a little bit warmer close to 70 degrees and for tomorrow's beta breakers the weather looks great. we are going to see not much fog and say lot of sunshine, a few -- a lot of sunshine, a few patches of fog by 6 a.m. but mostly sunny by 8:00. temperatures at the start in the low to mid-50s and will warm up to the 60s around 10 a.m., mid-60s at the finish line on ocean beach with lots of sunshine. the sea breeze will crank up for the afternoon. temperatures downtown san francisco for the afternoon going up to the mid-70s, up 7 degrees from what we had today, warmer around the rest of the bay area, 80s, even some temperatures close to 90 degrees inland on the rest of the sunday forecast in a few minute. the national transportation safety board want to lower the
11:06pm
legal limit for drinking and driving. the agency says it would save the lives of about 500 people per year, but some industries disagree with the new recommendations. lisa sylvester has details. >> reporter: if your blood alcohol content level is over .08%, then you can't legally drive a car. that's the current law in all states, but the national transportation safety board is now recommending the blood alcohol level for drunk driving be lowered to .05. the federal government says most drivers begin showing signs of impairment at a level under .08. >> alcohol impaired crashes are not accidents. they are crimes. >> reporter: we asked the prince george's, maryland police department to help us show how much difference there is between .08 and .05. so we enlisted our cnn colleague tim stoutsen berger. he is 6' 2 , weighs 200 pounds
11:07pm
and had a couple slices of pizza several hours before his test. tim drinks a couple shots bringing his blood alcohol level to .05. as he continues downing shots, his vision is less focused and his eyes become glassy, but there are several factors to consider. tim had five shots in an hour and a half. that got him to .09. someone smaller would be intoxicated a lot sooner or if you're not used to drinking. >> you have time, how long you've drank, the amount you drank, stomach content and your body weight. so those all factor into how quickly you're going to get intoxicated. >> reporter: the american beverage institute is criticizing the ntsb recommendation say it could include a smaller woman who has had only one drink. moving from .08 to .05 would criminalize perfectly responsible behavior further restricting the moderate consumption of alcohol by responsible adults prior to driving doing nothing to stop
11:08pm
hard core drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel, but the ntsb says this would put the united states with other countries that already adopted the .05 level. >> your short term memory is impaired. oftentimes your reflexes are impaired. that's why again it shows you down, so you don't have that quick response to go from your gas to your brake. you don't have the quick response if somebody jumps in front of you to serve to avoid them or to correct yourself if you do have to swerve. >> reporter: it's important to know this is a recommendation. it would still be up to the state to change the law and that will be tough. there was a fight a few years ago to lower the blood alcohol impairment level to .08. an out of control car mows down dozens in acro.
